You don't get paid by instructables, but if you post QUALITY content that will get featured, you get free pro membership, which is like money :)

Kipkay is a very good example of being paid to upload; he makes instructional videos (and associated ibles) --then posts them to youtube, vimeo, etc. Youtube pays based on advertisement impressions - but it's not a lot (per view). You need to be generating tens of thousands of hits to see any return. The paid uploader versions of these are by invite only - you have to post somewhat unique, QUALITY content before they will invite you.

I'm a youtube partner and have paid videos. The terms of service prevent me from divulging any details about the money involved - but let's just say I'm not going to retire on it...ever. I was invited after I had about 50 videos up and totaled about 200,000 views.

Don't know if you will be able to see this. I forgot about my account and ran across it and saw this comment. I too am a YouTube partner. My channel is CraigOstertag. Glad to hear of another Youtuber on here. However, I don't do sub for sub because I believe it is a detrimental scam and a scam to the YouTube community.

I have had a hellacious time making a vids for ibles with my iPhone through you-tube, took days of frustration for just a bit of content..

What could you recommend as hardware and or software  to make
reasonably nice videos.

Either windows movie maker, or imovie are the obvious free choices -- shooting for less editing later/one take makes things a lot easier (just jump cut through any unnecessary stuff). Extreme example is my ible about changing a light bulb.

I use movie maker live the free video Ed that comes with windows.

For a camera I use my digital camera that is capable of 1020P video.

A tripod is almost essential.
